Career highlights and awards

Kellen Louis Mond (born June 22, 1999) is an American football quarterback for the Texas A&M Aggies.

High school careerEdit

Mond originally attended Ronald Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas before transferring to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida prior to his senior year.[1] As a senior, he passed for 1,936 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 775 yards and 18 touchdowns. Mond was rated by the Rivals.com recruiting network as a five-star recruit and was ranked as the number one dual-threat quarterback in his class.[2] He committed to Texas A&M University to play college football under head coach Kevin Sumlin.[3][4]

College careerEdit

Mond entered his freshman year at Texas A&M in 2017 as a backup to Nick Starkel, but took over as the starter after Starkel was injured during the first game of the season against the UCLA Bruins.[5] In his first career start, he completed 12-of-21 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown.[6] Prior to Texas A&M's first game of the NCAA 2018-2019 season, Jimbo Fisher, who was in his first year as Texas A&M's head coach, replacing Kevin Sumlin, announced that Kellen Mond would be the starting quarterback for the season opener.[7] Despite an initial feeling that Mond and Nick Starkel would continue to battle for the job after a long competition over the summer,[8] Mond held on to the starting position for the remainder of the season, guiding the Aggies to an 8–4 record and a #19 ranking in the regular season College Football Playoff rankings.[9] The Aggies' season culminated in a historic 74–72 seven-overtime win over SEC rival Louisiana State University (LSU). This game set several records, including the most points ever scored in a game in the FBS era, and tied a handful of other games for longest college football game of all time with seven overtimes.[10]
